[4.0] "Probably the most intense wrestler of all time, The Ultimate Warrior was what you call an energizer, he had the look and was completely over-the-top and that's the only reason he became a star. I was never a fan of his character, I always felt it was 'too much", seeing him talk to his gods and everything felt pretty silly for me but at least he entertained crowds and was a big draw, I guess. Because a man must have some star power to be at the top with such poor wrestling skills. He was a terrible wrestler, I would even say embarrassing, he used to do the same old boring moves every time and without his ability to entertain and get the crowd nuts, his matches would be simply unwatchable. The Ultimate Warrior was one of those guys who don't deserve everything they get, who are given too much power and burry other much more talented guys with their unwillingness to let them go ever. But for Vince McMahon, money has always been much more important than passion. If not for his cultural impact on the sport, the rating would be much lower."

[5.0] "His in-ring work was often hideous and sometimes very sloppy, yet his match with Savage at WM7 will always be on my top five. His promos were nonsensical and often rambling, but it worked. Warrior invested much into his character and became one of the more unique and charismatic wrestlers of his or any other era."
The Chosen One wrote on 11.06.2016:
[2.0] "Yes Ultimate Warrior may be a legend and may have some charisma but that does not make up for his horrible promos and in ring ability. He had one of the worst finisher and signature moves in the classic era. In my opinion he didnt deserve to unite the IC Championship and World Championship let alone win either of the championships. He gets two points for having insane charisma."
Mean Smark Callous wrote on 13.04.2016:
[7.0] "Would love to give him a higher rating because he is my all time favorite, but being objective, the guy was just not a good wrestler. extremely limited moveset, known to be dangerous to work with (many of his peers have complained about his lack of professionalism) and worst of all, flaky, would just simply no show whenever he felt like it. BUT his gimmick, attire, and promos were all awesome. yes I know his promos were gibberish that's why I loved them cuz the guy was just batshit crazy. Like I said, I want to rate him higher but he was just not a very good wrestler. if it wasn't for his epic gimmick and being permanently over for eternity he'd get a much lower rating."

[6.0] "Not the greatest or worst worker, but not many people have presence like Warrior. His personality and crazy antics are some sort of shining testament to his place in history, or some shit."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 21.11.2015:
[8.0] "Love him or hate him, The Ultimate Warrior made wrestling entertaining. Warrior began to cut his teeth in WCCW as The Dingo Warrior; earning both the Texas Heavyweight Championship and WCCW's World Tag Team Championship with Lance Von Erich shortly after joining on. This helped Warrior attract the attention of the WWE, who brought him on to become the next WWE superstar. Though his ability to work safely was in question, Warrior became a popular WWE Intercontiental Champion due to his charisma alone. As the 1980's turned into the 1990's, Warrior had his "moment" at WrestleMania VI where he defeated Hulk Hogan to secure the WWE World Championship. Yet as his star was on the rise, Warrior found himself in disagreements with the WWE over finances and was fired after SummerSlam '91. Though Warrior was brought back for WM VIII, he was entered into embarrassing programs before leaving again by year's end. Warrior wrestled for the WWE a final time in 1996, but problems arising from finances saw him depart once more. Warrior then went to WCW to feud with Hogan, but the results were ill received by the fans and somewhat soured his legacy. Just the same, Warrior was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at WM XXX; where he managed to eulogize himself on RAW not 24 hours before suffering a fatal heart attack. Though his passing is viewed in sadness, only Warrior was capable of eulogizing The Ultimate Warrior - And both will live on in the Heavens FOREVER!"

[10.0] "One of a kind, maybe the greatest character pro wrestling has ever seen. The intensity he brought to his matches from the minute he exploded down the ramp way is unmatched. Was never going to chain wrestle and put on a clinic but his matches were always entertaining"

[0.0] "He is nowhere near a 10. He was a disgrace to the wrestling business and in real life as well. The only thing he got go for him was his character. And even then I never liked his character. I feel bad for being negative on someone who died but I juswt hate it when people pretend that he was a great worker."

[0.0] "When I see those "10/10 rating" comments it's really hard not to laugh. So here we go : an absolutely jerk backstage, only cared about making money. His promos were awful and if you managed to sit through his entire backstage promo, you are the man. And of course, his in ring work is something I have to mention. Atomic Drop? Shoulder Block? Gorilla Press Slam and his shitty finisher - a splash. Vince gave him a chance to became a next Hogan and he failed. This guy is a great example that in WWF/E you can be a jerk, shitty talker, shitty wrestler, but if you are a great bodybuilder you will be a champion. The biggest jerk of all time and the most overrated wrestler of all time."

[4.0] "poor in ring skills led to poor matches. his poor mic skills also attribute to this rating. he had a decent character and to his credit he always got over with the crowd but as far as actually raw talent is concerned. he had very little"
